The Illuminati! Controversial Conspiracy Facts vs Trivial Conspiracy Theories…

Please stop using the word ‘Illuminati’ to describe a bunch of people we know little or nothing about.
Yes, there are businessmen and politicians with their fingers in many pies with vested interests, for example both Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld were giving orders to invade countries while they had vested interests in  a company called Halliburton which profits from rebuilding the countries they’ve bombed through construction contracts and oil contracts and the Rothschild family seems to establish a central bank in any country the USA invades. But we need a new term to define conspiracy facts that doesn’t make people turn off immediately, ‘illuminati’ and ‘shadow government’ make people turn their eyes up and poke fun at you.
Here is an example of some FACTS that can’t be denied by the skeptics. “Bunnatine Greenhouse, a civil servant with 20 years of contracting experience, had complained to Army officials on numerous occasions that Halliburton had been unlawfully receiving special treatment for work in Iraq, Kuwait and the Balkans. Criminal investigations were opened by the U.S. Justice Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Pentagon’s inspector general.
In one of Greenhouse’s claims, she said that military auditors caught Halliburton overcharging the Pentagon for fuel deliveries into Iraq. She also complained that Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld’s office took control of every aspect of Halliburton’s $7 billion Iraqi oil/infrastructure contract. After her testimony, Greenhouse was demoted for poor performance.[45] Greenhouse’s attorney, Michael Kohn, stated in The New York Times that “she is being demoted because of her strict adherence to procurement requirements and the Army’s preference to sidestep them when it suits their needs.”[46]” Just the tip of an iceberg on wikipedia (which is by no means infallible.)
It is not very hard to find out what the actual Illuminati were.
The Illuminati (plural of Latin illuminatus, “enlightened”) is a name given to several groups, both real and fictitious. Historically the name refers to the Bavarian Illuminati, an Enlightenment-era secret society founded on May 1, 1776 to oppose superstition, prejudice, religious influence over public life, abuses of state power, and to support women’s education and gender equality. The Illuminati were outlawed along with other secret societies by the Bavarian government leadership with the encouragement of the Roman Catholic Church, and permanently disbanded in 1785.[1] In the several years following, the group was vilified by conservative and religious critics who claimed they had regrouped and were responsible for the French Revolution.
In subsequent use, “Illuminati” refers to various organizations claiming or purported to have unsubstantiated links to the original Bavarian Illuminati or similar secret societies, and often alleged to conspire to control world affairs by masterminding events and planting agents in government and corporations to establish a New World Order and gain further political power and influence. – Wikipedia again. It’s really that easy.
Now the word ‘Illuminati’ is used to describe anyone who has unchecked power, usually with undertones of occult and/or esoteric knowledge or implying that they gained power through occult and esoteric means.
Which completely alienates anyone who doesn’t believe in the occult and esoteric (for the record, I do.) And also makes any argument abut the real shadow government, the British politicians that stand to make profits from privatising the NHS, Thatcher’s sons making arms deals, American politicians profiting from Halliburton, the Bush family oil deal ties, all the real conspiracy facts fade into the background behind the noise of conspiracy theories.
I don’t know if Rumsfeld, Cheney, Bush, and Blair wear funny robes and do funny rituals. I know that Bush and Senator Kerry both refused to talk about their admitted affiliation with the Skull and Bones society when both were the only likely candidates for the Presidential election (see the news clips below cos the skeptics will think I’m just waffling.) But what I know for certain is that we have to identify the issues if we wish to solve them and one of the issues is misinformation and disinformation.
I am willing to accept if and when I am wrong. I am requesting corrections. Because the more we know and understand of what is happening now, and what has happened in the past the more likely we can and will fix the now so that our children can build a better world for our children’s children, wide awake individuals who can see the facade for what it is. I think that the war and pollution is literally the work of a stupid, selfish civilization and I expect our grandkids will look at the current political system of picking between a short list of war mongers with vested interests as backward as stupid as we see previous civilizations committing human sacrifice to Gods in the hope of better weather.

Solution? We could just use “the bastards” instead of the word Illuminati haha

Conclusion. (The real solution?)

I like the story-telling aspect. That’s what I did up there, told a new story (actually an old one and one tat resonates as ‘truth’.) Terence Mckenna said become the media. Robert Anton Wilson said something like “The illuminati is out to get me” is a losers story, a winners story is “I am the illuminati and no group out there is smarter than me and my friends.”

{Actually Robert Anton Wilson said exactly this – “paranoia is a Loser script; it defines somebody else as being in charge around here except me. I prefer to define myself and my friends as the architects of the future. If David Rockefeller has the same idea about himself and his friends, well, the future itself will decide which coalition was really on the Evolutionary Wave: the Money people or the Idea people” }

I like that. I may not have Halliburtons money or Rothschild’s political influence but I write stories and make music that changes peoples hearts and minds, opens peoples hearts and minds and it is the stories that stick that will co-create the world our childrens children will grow up in. Also I will be making more money, just not sacrificing soldiers and brown people or bankrupting nations in order to do it.

ps Yes, apparently there is really somebody called Bunnatine Greenhouse (should have been bun a ting or bun a tens. 420. It does really look like I might just quit blazing but I couldn’t let that go past, come on.)

Be love. I am sovereign. So are you. Don’t forget to love yourselves.

Everything is everything, act like ya know 😉

Senator Kerry and Ge0rge Bush as promised…

And finally a musical solution to all this confusion…

defending love with truth

How to look good naked… hmm…

Reblogging because it shocked me and inspired me. It’s an issue that is rarely spoken about but porn is changing the way we view sex. And porn is an industry dominated by men (and according to some
“truthers” out there dominated by occultists.)
Once again I’m ashamed at my fellow men and amazed by women. (It’s okay guys, I know plenty of sensitive, caring men and I won’t succumb to man-bashing for popularity, but the fact is some of us are prejudiced, sexist and programmed by porn and mainstream media and most don’t even know it.) It’s getting easier to distinguish what the Divine Sacred Masculine actually is now that so many men are clearly expressing what it is not. I’m kind of disgusted and ashamed at humanity, not just men, that have allowed the same values to be (sometimes literally) shoved down our throats. The fact that that ideas propagated by pornography have damaged peoples self esteem to the point of saving thousands of pounds to change their appearance, but it’s not just pornography, mainstream media does the same thing every day directly to little girls through advertising, TV shows, even cartoons. Thank you for this article, some human rights abuses are so subtle that they get us to abuse ourselves. “The Holy of Holies” is the Holy of Holies regardless of how hairy the lips, or how bulbous the labia.
Thanks again to ‘Entente Féminine’ for sharing this story and their views on this.

Entente Féminine in English

Recently a 21 year old woman came to me for a consultation about her menstrual cycle. A typical session ensued, nothing out of the ordinary, until the last 10 minutes when the real reason for this young woman’s visit emerged. It was nothing to do with her cycle and its ups and downs, nothing odd there. It was at the innermost heart of her femininity that everything was upside-down.

Between sobs, this bright young woman spoke of her fear of intimacy, her fear of being judged and rejected. She had lost all confidence in herself, in her ability to be in a relationship, particularly a sexual one because her vulva wasn’t ‘normal’: the inner lips were 2cm longer than the outer lips. She knew this was abnormal from the pornography that she had seen and her judgement was confirmed by the last lover who had seen her naked and had…

Remember, Remember the 5th of November…

Just sharing some music and trying to find solutions to this economic, political mess we appear to be in… 😉

This is inspired by Russell Brand advocating ‘egalitarian socialist utopia’ during his interview with Jeremy Paxman and the subsequent backlash from members of the Truth Movement and people who have lived through socialist regimes rather than utopias, also inspired by the movie and comic-book ‘V for Vendetta’, the Anonymous movement and the fact that I have two songs on soundcloud which were both also inspired by all of the above (and they’re amazing). The Anonymous movement have apparently anonymously decided to instigate a million mask march on the Houses of Parliament on November the 5th. {Edit: Actually worldwide} That’s tomorrow at the time of posting. What follows is mainly edited from conversations I was having online with like-minded philosophers.

Communism on paper and communism in practice are two very different things…

Communism on paper is “everybody sharing” but in practice is “government is stealing”. I’d be down with Russell Brand’s Socialist Egalitarian Utopia but they tend to turn in to dictatorship dystopias, which I’m not down with. Communist theory seems fine in theory but in practice it tends to be manipulated by governments to have absolute totalitarian control. There has to be a happy medium between absolute corporate control and absolute governmental control but I have no idea what that is because the powers that be have only let one of the two extremes succeed in the past so we cannot even imagine what other systems might look like, like a truly representational democracy or a society without money etc. I guess I have witnessed other systems on small scales, sustainable communities, Rainbow Gatherings {Rainbow Gatherings are temporary intentional communities like mini festivals with no money-trading allowed on site, food is bought off site and then served in two big ‘food circles’, preceded by singing ‘Rainbow Songs’ usually about being one with nature etc. They’re great.} etc but imagining a completely different political system or even voting system is difficult because we are trained from birth to believe that we are the pinnacle of evolution and therefore our current system is the very best. The ancient Greeks had a more representational system of democracy if I remember correctly (did they invent the system?) and I know very little about the communist systems in South and Central America, but hopefully you get my point.

Brand’s idea was something along the lines of “don’t ask me to come up with a new political system sat here in this hotel room Jeremy” or words to that effect…   But he did also say to tax the corporations heavily however that has been countered by arguments from people who have lived through communist regimes and seen corporations, companies and then even family businesses get basically stolen from them by the government. I think if a political change is gonna work it has to change from the bottom up, with a cap on how much a politician can earn, a cap on how much a corporation can contribute to a party’s election campaign (basically how much a corporation can pay a politician) and it has to be implemented by nicer people than the psychotic sociopathic war mongering posh boys (there is nothing wrong with being posh) who we currently have to choose from. Cue revolution? Hopefully information is spreading fast enough that by the time our kids are voting a sufficient proportion of the population will start living life differently, whatever that looks like, without the need for bloody revolution. I hope I’m somewhere warmer and saner by that time, if or when it comes to that.

Now, let’s not skim over a couple of facts here. V, the main character in V for Vendetta had some good ideas in his fictional world and had some serious villainy to contend with but he was also a homicidal maniac who imprisoned and tortured a woman to teach her a lesson (which she appreciated, but still.) Would it be worse if he had tortured a man? Good question, but off topic. And Guy Fawkes, he was trying to lead a revolution but he was trying to, well, we all know what he was trying to do. What I’m saying is both V and Guy Fawkes were violent. For the record I’m a pacifist (but I’m a human being, pacifism is a policy, not a rule). However the research that I have done in the power of intention (see Lynne McTaggart’s book ‘The Field’ for the very best collection of scientific validations I’ve come across thus far) has given me enough faith in the power of consciousness now that I truly believe that more people meditating for peace will change the world in a more productive way faster and more efficiently than more people rioting. However that does not mean that I advocate doing nothing, people need to know what we perceive as wrong before we can make it right, information has to spread. And those who know that what they do is harming others for profit will have to stop when enough people are aware. But protesting is not rioting. Regarding violence I could say “we’re all one” and David Cameron is just another human being doing what he thinks best etc etc and a bunch of other hippy, Buddhist or even Christian values to counter the ‘Slaughter the bastards’ philosophy but A I don’t think that’s necessary and B I’m not sure which parts I actually believe in these days. Maybe I’m not spiritual after all, maybe I’m just squeamish.

Going off on tangent thoughts of Christians slaughtering millions of people in the names of Christ and thousands of Tibetan buddhists being killed by China’s communist regime. Now there’s alot to think about when put in the context of all of the above. Suffice to say, I am not a fan of violence but I am also bored of letting the bastards get away with it. And as much as people wait too long to iron out the details before they implement change there is no point chaning unless it is for the better, and regardless of hippy waffle and/or spiritual new age business a society that sees the welfare, happiness and well-being of each individual as the end goal- not a spiritual ideal, a practical and a real one – instead of a society built on the notion that the financial profit of each individual in competition with others is preferable to me. And society’s that engage in murder for profit, let alone the neglect of environment and individual happiness, have lasted far too long while starting illegal wars for profit, breaking international human rights conventions and generally being bastards. I know lots of lovely people. But politicians tend to be selfish and greedy. Maybe it’s merely an aspect of reality that power is gained by those who seek power and those tha seek power are selfish and greedy. But maybe as an evolutionary imperative the next generation will yield some born leaders who are not selfish, greedy and psychotic.

Here are some wise words from some wise friends on the subject…

“Jacque Fresco’s idea of a marxist based society that doesn’t have a government, and uses advanced technology that cannot be hacked as the medium to tally what it is humanity wants is an interesting idea…. But then Skynet.” (I laughed out loud.)

“The problem is that a system with representatives will always end up giving those reps actual power and then it will begin to attract people who want power …a system with full self-representation…ends up being dominated by the most articulate, charismatic and well-educated people .. so privilege remains in control.”

“Someone once called communism the greatest idea never to have been tried out in the history of humankind. Sounds bout right”

and finally

“I try not to use words like communism I prefer to use the term ‘work together’ . Coz that is the actual thing we want – communism is the equivalent of religion as opposed to spirituality.”

Meanwhile, here’s some music I made in the hope that it might change some hearts and minds, available to download for free at least until after November 5th. Remember remember the 5th of November! 😉

FREEDOM is a Dub tune produced by Reuben ‘Delta Dub’ Grant all about how we have more freedom than most in the West so perhaps we should use it to shine our light, show our creativity and inform people about people who have less freedom than we do.

PROBLEM / SOLUTION is a Spoken-Word ambient epic with soulful harmonies beautifully produced by King Slim

and just cos I’m judging myself for being self-obsessed here’s another tune by somebody else. It’s amazing.

T’nah Apex, the female MC in the Pro-Era crew (same crew as Joey Bada$$ and the late great Capital Steez) with a beautiful singing voice, epic rap flows and spiritual lyrics on a genre-defying beat. The song’s called XYXX
